-ups. at the university of illinois at chicago, several hundred vets like rodney bonner showed up. his dream - to make homes that not just consume but also produce energy - needs guidance. "i have prototypes on the drawing board. i need help getting it to reality." illinois is hardly the only state helping vets not just fill but also create jobs. in fact, it's part of a trend. "nationally, there's a trend to help vets create their own business." and though sequestration has cut a number of contracts, veteran-owned businesses are in a special category: set-asides - work set-aside for veteran owned businesses specifically. "it would squeeze them if there weren't a lot of 'set-asides,' but there are more opportunities than there are vet-owned companies. so it's good for them, more than anyone else working with the government, right now. " there's one more reason for programs helping vets start their own businesses: vets hire other vets, which helps cut unemployment. "not only does it create business for the state, but it redues unemployment." this is not to say veterans have escaped sequestration cuts -

illinois delegation, congressman -- congresswoman january schakowsky. ms. schakowsky: i want to thank my colleague, representative frank ell from florida for bringing us. we are wearing the colors of the israeli flag today in celebration of the 65th birthday, anniversary of the state of israel. i, too, when i walked over to the capitol, i saw our flag at half mast, recognizing the tragedy that happened in boston and i would like to acknowledge and give my condolences to those families of the two that we know have been lost, have been killed and wish well the dozens more that have been injured. and i do believe in what the president said that whoever did this will be brought to justice. so along with israelis and their friends around the world, we are also at a moment in celebration, celebrating the renewal of the jewish state in the land of israel. for 65 years, our two nations have enjoyed a close friendship as well as a strategic alliance. since the united states became the first country to recognize israel, a mere 11 minutes after her founding, president truman recognized israel as a

, the with us now, dan, you're from illinois and you're a critic of illinois's government. illinois is almost insolvent, if i could put it like that. i would imagine that the people in illinois want this internet sales tax because they are so, so desperate for money. am i right? >> well, you know, i've dealt with the illinois state treasure and one of the few republicans in this state and yes, i'm critical of the way that things are going forward here, but you know, to answer your question, because they're desperate for the money, i don't think that that's the reason. i think there are a number of people that support this because it really is a sense of fairness for our bricks and mortar stores that are there established in our community, that are paying property taxes and paying the sales tax, so i think what's really looking at this is more of a fairness approach as opposed to looking at it for revenue. but it's going to make more internet sellers, tax collectors for the entire country. that's a huge bureaucratic burden to place on internet sellers, isn't it? >> well, i tell you it's part--
illinois, which i just visit earlier this week, you understand or you come to understand the impact on taxes, on your ability to improve in your marketplace, to improve the wages that you are gaining and to improve opportunities all around you. has been stated already today that we have one of the least competitive tax jurisdictions in the whole world. the u.s. used to be at the head of the pack. by doing nothing of the past 30 years in actually fallen behind. here is what we need to do. look out over the marketplace in the united states and avoid those jurisdictions that have failed. i come from a state that has failed. the state of illinois fell into the trap in a big fiscal drama of raising taxes and proposing the dow was going to be the remedy. here's what happened. taxes went up. the underlying spending problems were not dealt with, and now illinois has a higher than average unemployment rate. the second amount per capita debt of any state in the union. san billion dollars in unpaid bills to my current bills after the new revenue came in. a credit rating that has been downgrade

these kinds of problems? >> illinois is facing them now. so in illinois you have the state funds which are 39% funded, even assuming that every dollar that goes into the funds is going to earn 7 3/4. so that's really a very, very stark contrast. if you look in europe, where they do these funds, they're measuring them at much more conservative rates. and they're 95% funded. this is a really serious situation. and within illinois you have the city of chicago which has been undercontributing to pensions and underfunding the pensions. basically chicago and illinois have been sort of writing their own rules about pension funding in order not to have to run balanced budgets, in order to spend money now that they don't really have. >> i'm afraid we have to leave there it. >> they're not going to be able to do that much long. >> thank you very much. i'm sorry to interrupt you. we have a time pinch here. we'll have you back again with us soon. thank you very much. >>> thousands of visa applications for skilled foreign workers expected to be snapped up in less than a week. it might be a good sign for t
